Tamulpur, Sept 1: Under the ‘Transformation of Aspirational District’ Programme, NITI Aayog, Government of India, and Piramal Foundation entered into Statement of Intent (SOI) in March, 2018 to work closely with the district administration and other stakeholders of education on the identified NITI Indicators (KPI).

Piramal Foundation for Education Leadership, a part of Piramal Group, has been consistently engaged in designing and providing leadership solution to major obstacle in development of education in India.

For this programme Jagdish Bishnoi, a Gandhi Fellow working in the Aspirational District of Baksa, has shouldered the responsibility of transforming two schools in Tamulpur block to be modelled in the district, and has initiated BaLa (Building as Learning Aid) and ‘Learning Corner’ with the help of school staff, community and district officials to improve learning outcome of the students.

Working towards this specific NITI Indicator of Student Learning Outcome and other indicators as well, Gandhi Fellows of Piramal Foundation have introduced different interventions in several model schools across the entire district. In Tamulpur Block, Gandhi Fellows have strived hard to gather community support for development of the schools through fostering of ownership and have indeed received tremendous response on successful participation of School Management Committee, guardians, and other members of community in rolling out donation driveshaft.

On Saturday, marking the commencement of ‘Swacchata Pakhwada’, the community members were engaged in cleanliness drive in the 182-LP School Barkhopa. People came forward to lend a hand to the school staff in cleaning the school premises.
